Strong emotional outbursts raise a red flag that a person might be projecting repressed parts of his own personality onto others.

Garv - 

Dana's rant about GSP was the most disgusting display of ego I have ever seen.  All it did was to show how immature and insecure he really is. 

It's obvious that Dana has grown very frustrated with his do-nothing job.  Lorenzo is the decision maker on all the important issues, and Dana is left with deciding what walkout music fighters can use, and what outfits Arianny is going to wear.  That's about it.  And it kills Dana to be so powerless.  That's why he's such a micro-manager.  It's all he's allowed to manage.

The guy is an emotional basket case and it shows every time he opens his mouth.  He shits on the fighters only because Lorenzo lets him, and because he knows, deep down, that they're everything he wishes he was but is not.  And never will be.

VTFU Reggie.


What are you talking about?  Dana is the UFC

Dana is part of the UFC if you don't like it move on and watch something else instead of wining like little bitches. Any what makes you so special OP? Your a little bitch that's what you are I'm sick of people crying and bitching about shit. Be a man and get over it. The world doesn't cater to you guys. Phone Post 3.0

I remember starting an epic (by 2005 standards)thread about Dana White and "do you want to be a f*ucking fighter". I said that the Zuffa/UFC is an amazing product but DFW Jr. was the wrong guy to head it. I said the UFC will never amount to much if Dana was involved. I felt like a polished businessman's face should front the UFC. About 3 years later I started a thread admitting how wrong I was. You can't argue with success although I do feel like it might be time to allow for another voice from ZUFFA to be heard. Dana is one note and it gets old.

That is just my opinion and I could be wrong...again.

Dana works harder than anyone for the sport. I think what he was saying is that gsp should fight OR retire. Not just take random time off. I have no problem with him saying that. Flame away. Phone Post 3.0

"I'm a big fan of Dana White" -UG shills.  

 

Seriously, remember when this sport used to be about the people fighting?

 

I know, I'm just talking crazy talk.  The sport is really about Dana White, the President of the UFC.

While Dana has said some dumb shit indeed, and does act very emotionally, he still LOVES the sport. He does. He isn't doing this just for money, he has accomplished lots of good too and some of his reactions for certain things just prove that he cares about this sport.

Dana's current persona has become the equivalent to Puff Daddy's ad-libbing on Biggie records.

A distraction.

Someone sure is pretending to know a lot about the inner workings of zuffa. I don't support Dana in the way he handled the situation but your extrapolation is pure speculation. Phone Post 3.0

chew22 - Yah hilarious how dfw can be the peacemaker between Ronda and Meisha one moment talking about how all of this "isn't good for the sport" and then talk trash on his top earners.

Oh the ironing.

DFW works hard to protect his fighters. He doesn't need a champ bringing awareness to PED abuse by voluntarily participating in extra drug testing.

Siscio - All of you should really just shut up

All it takes is him coming on here and calling one of you a "goof" to drop your soaked panties.

If he called me a goof, I would just tell him I was messing around trying to get his attention and how awesome he is at being the president of the UFC.  And I would ask for free tickets again.

And Im more bothered by a few dozen other fighters he's talked shit about than GSP.  Couldnt tell you who they all are, but the Rory Macdonald talk was harsh.

Dana is clinging on to yesterday with all his might as that is all he has. The sport is trying to move forward, trying to mature, where in Russia you have Fedor Emelianenko bringing it main stream in the flash of an eye, a government sanctioned certified sport. The calm serious demeanor not only yields champions but also gets the job done. Dana White is clinging on to yesterday, from dressing like a 20 y/o to swearing and trying to appear cool. He's not growing with the sport.  There are no 12-20 y/o's watching, spending 50 dollars per event. The original audience is maturing while he is stuck in yesteryear. he is incompatible at this time in this space to be leading the charge. The sport needs an adult to run it now, the rebellious loud mouth boorish adolescent era has come and gone. Sadly he cannot understand that or more likely does not want to because his bit part in theatre will be over. Instead of progress forward and maturing along with the sport he is taking it side ways and creating a circus in which he can fit in and continue to stay. Someone needs to paint the larger picture to Zuffa because it is as plain as one can see. Unless of course the primary objective is to create circuses everywhere possible as soon as possible and make as much as possible and then kill the sport just after cashing out. Which would be a great pity. All the while in Russia a 'federation of mixed martial arts' will exist, Master of Mixed Martial Arts will be bestowed and serious competitions between European nations will take place. The UFC under Dana White will be another 'sad' story in the next historical documentary of MMA.  early area [NHB, no rules no regulations, banned from TV, had to sell it all for nothing] ..[Dana White era bought it pumped millions into it, made millions unable to grow it collapsed it and killed it]...[next buyer/generation fixes it amalgamates it with the slow and plodding Russian Federation].  Dana White will be remembered for steering it all wrong and fucking it all up.
 
 
As Far as George it could be several factors starting with the insistence on not fighting Rory. If one looks back you can see Dana insisting it will happen i.e he will ensure by his influence it will happen.  The waxed hairs on his neck were trying to bristle at this stage with GSP. The we double down on trying to clean up the business, the touchy subject of PED's and his insistence to do that. So long as Vitor Belfort is left alone Dana would be happy. But that would not be so. So now GSP is an irritation just waiting to lose. As soon as Brazil starts to blossom, Dana White no longer has to make nice nice with Canada which according to him was the fight capital of the world Now add China with the announcement of TUF, need for Canada becomes less and less, and once one or two more large markets appear to be in the bag, Canada will no longer be necessary. This is all in Dana White's little mind. He's a social climber, the class clown, throwing his topsiders at the nuns to garner a laugh from the rich Fertitta friends. He's still a typical opportunistic user man child. He cannot wait for the day he can tell Canada to get lost. As Brazil blossoms, and on the incredibly slight chance China takes off, the further back the need for Canada and GSP becomes. He is not a businessman and and will never be. He's that organ grinder with the monkey on his should, something from yesterday.
 
It is quite sad watching the demise of this all when it is all so evident. It is all collapsing as we watch it in real time. He has everything at his finger tips and is pissing it all away. His increasing hysteria is proof positive of that. Like the addicted gambler that he may be he is cussing and fussing why is it not working as I expect it to be. Nothing he's personally done with the UFC has ever turned out right. Someone needs to seat him down and point that out. :-(

And the fact that Dana insists on GSP even fighting Rory is so fucked up and shows his true colors. Fucking control freak sociopath shit right there.
